There are very few armagnac vintages from the 1950s available. This is a very good armagnac that has been in an oak barrel for a very long time and benefitted from its maturation.
|Aroma||Vanilla, butter, pine, orange, prune, toffee and biscuit.|
|Distillation||Distilled at around 57 - 60 degrees. Lower than other brandies, providing greater wine flavours but less refinement than cognacs|
|Flavour||Well balanced and mellow with citrus flavours, especially orange.|
|Grape Variety||Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche and Baco|
|Reduction and Strength||Delord minimise their dilutions wherever possible, but all of their armagnacs are bottled at 40% abv.|
|Viticulture||The climate is soft and humid with sunny autumns and the soil is made of siliceous clay which is poor in lime, giving Bas Armagnacs a lightness and fragrance with subtle tastes|
